The end of voyager they went through the borg warp coil really quickly, that surely had to be faster than Warp 10. There is also other instances of people going over warp 10, but I think safety was the issue then
I think the picture of the Orville is a bit small in relations with Voyager. I think the Orville is bigger than the Voyager.
In episode 5, when they zoomed in on Mecer's room, at the time of the gathering in his quarters, his room seemed to be at an angle on the back of the Orville, though on this picture it seems like straight floors.
Here's the best I can find on the net now, will see if I can get a shot from the episode at home:
He was born Catholic but is an Atheist , he is openly anti religion (noted a bit more towards christianity), but not a militant Atheist.
He will throw one religious joke in say 3 or 4 episodes of a series. So expect a joke or jokes like this every now and again.
A Lot of Christian sites and Blogs don't like him
Gist of how he speaks :
Stay away from the church. In the battle over science vs. religion, science offers credible evidence for all the serious claims it makes. The church says, ‘Oh, it’s right here in this book, see? The one written by people who thought the sun was magic?’ I for one would like to see some proof that there is a God. And if you say ‘a baby’s smile’ I’m going to kick you right in the stomach
